So...Stormbringer, the story which IDW basically jammed down our throats with more ads than Marvel has for various underpants, has come to a close. I decided that this is a good point to try to summarize the IDW timeline, from what we've seen thusfar (Hearts of Steel, of course, does not count). I personally like IDW's new universe for the 'bots, as it takes some fresh approaches and some cool new angles on old characters (despite the admitted shortcomings of the 4-issue blocks). Anyway, here's the lowdown thusfar: SPOILER HEAVY So-many million years ago - Cybertronian Civil War begins, planet being quickly depleted of energy. -Shockwave begins Regenesis project. -Thunderwing begins to tamper with Pretender Shell technology. End of the last Ice Age - Shockwave visits Earth, is tailed by Dynobots, who are not yet speech-impeti..miz..ed. Fight ensues, stuff go boom, 'bots buried until Escalation (I hope). -Bludgeon charged as new head scientist by Megatron. -Thunderwing apparently goes crazy with power overload (however that happens) and blitzes across Cybertron. -Decepticon and Autobot armies join forces, Thunderwing defeated (again, however that happens). MASSIVE TIME GAP - (Soundwave noted to have visited Earth at some time) -A few years ago - Decepticons begin colonization project of new worlds (Infiltration) Present Day - Thunderwing discovered by Bludgeon's cult, and unleashed. Prime, the Wreckers and Predacons fight Thunderwing. -Verity and company get stuck in the firing line when Autobots discover Infiltration Unit. -Megatron...apparently is on Earth, gets into confusing fight with Starscream. -Prime is in da' house. Bitches. So....that was....awful. I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm diggin' these new series, but there are more plot holes here than in Godzilla: Final Wars Hopefully we'll learn more about this million-year gap in a few months, but does anyone have anything to add?
